Displaying Images from Tumblr RSS Feeds in Wizzley RSS Modules

I have become quite a fan of Tumblr recently.  I even receive a little traffic to Wizzley from Tumblr, which is cool, and I suspect this traffic will only grow over time as the site has been growing hugely in popularity.

I have a problem with the images not coming through from Tumblr RSS feeds.  There clearly are images in the feeds.  You can see an example of how the RSS modules are displaying in Wizzley here, and you can see that there are images in many of the post items that aren't being pulled, by looking at the RSS feeds here and here.

Since Tumblr is more image-oriented than text-oriented, as a whole, I think it is really important for images to be pulled into the RSS feed module.  To my knowledge there's nothing I can do to change the programming on Tumblr's end, so I would be very grateful if the site admins could see if they could figure out how to get the images to show up properly given how the feeds currently are set up.

But if there is some trick or hack I can use to get it to work, I'd certainly like to know!

Thank you so much!

Our feed module only supports images that have been embedded as "enclosures" into the feed. That's the standard way of including images into a feed stream. Tumbl includes their images in form of html tgas into the body of their feed messages.
